Leighton Meester Covers Marie Claire US April 2012

The selection of cover stars for April 2012 has been pretty amazing, right? From Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for ELLE UK right through to Jennifer Lopez for Vogue US, I’ve been very pleased with the cover girls. Marie Claire US have just released their April cover, starring Leighton Meester, which is another great choice.

Personally I’m not that keen on the cover itself – there is too much hair in Leighton’s face and her fringe is distracting me as it looks like a DIY job – but I’m pleased to see she scored the cover and I like the accompanying editorial.

In the exclusive interview Leighton discuss her difficult childhood, revealing “I couldn’t relate to kid stuff. ‘Jimmy doesn’t like me!’ Who cares? I was worried we didn’t have gas money or food. Those were my concerns.”
